Oh Stacie. As if your plate wasn't full enough already, you now have to deal with what I like to call "idiots" who say they are jealous of you & your family because people are sending you money to help provide for Dalton's basic needs. Are you kidding me??? What in the world are these people thinking??? I pray for their poor misguided souls who obviously have a very warped sense of reality. Please don't give those people (and I hope & pray they are very FEW people) a second thought - other than to also pray for their poor misguided souls. Please do not let them make you feel undeserving or as if you are doing anything wrong. You are not doing anything wrong. In fact, I believe you are doing everything right by reaching out and asking for help, and I believe it is our duty as God's children to help out our fellow mankind. If you didn't ask for help, then you wouldn't be allowing God to work to His fullest potential by showing you how wonderful & loving & giving & helpful His children can be by helping one another. None of us can go through this journey alone, nor do I believe God ever intended for us to go through it alone. You & your family are such an inspiration to others. Your words of praises and your actions will always rise above the few nay-sayers out there. And you know what?!? I just thought of something. Those nay-sayers SHOULD be a little jealous of you, but not because they "wish someone would give them money to take care of their children". They instead should be a little jealous of the wonderful relationship you have with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I hope and pray they come to the realization not to be jealous of that relationship but instead figure out they can have that same relationship with God themselves. All they have to do is seek and ask. Maybe if they continue to follow your story they too will seek His guidance and learn to live their lives ON PURPOSE!! Thank you for pouring your heart out for all of us to witness. I am so very proud of you and so grateful to call you a friend. I love you!!
